‘Not good for the sport’ – Floyd Mayweather’s protege Gervonta Davis claims ‘clown’ Jake Paul ‘can’t fight’

, ‘Not good for the sport’ – Floyd Mayweather’s protege Gervonta Davis claims ‘clown’ Jake Paul ‘can’t fight’

GERVONTA DAVIS said ‘clown’ Jake Paul ‘can’t fight’ and is not good for the sport of boxing.

YouTube star Paul, who is 4-0 as a fighter, has feuded with Floyd Mayweather’s protege recently despite their huge skill and size difference.

Paul takes on Tommy Fury later this month after a long war of words between the pair.

But Davis, 27, spoke out against the social media sensation’s splash in boxing on a recent podcast with pranksters Nelk Boys.

He said: “It’s not good for the sport, I don’t think so. No, because let’s just say like me, right, I’ve been training since I was seven.

“Like, I’ve been training 20 years. And then you’ve got somebody that’s never done it before and put on boxing gloves and can make $1million.

“That’s crazy.”

Asked whether Paul will bring more attention to boxing, Davis replied: “No, because they’re only going to pay attention to who they wanna pay attention to.

“They don’t care about, they don’t even know the other fighters. They just know this one guy they they’re paying attention to.

“Once they, like stop watching him, they’re on about their day.”

In Paul’s first three fights, he beat YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 37.

But in August, the American improved to 4-0 with a win over eight rounds against ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39.

Beforehand, he put two-division champion Davis – who fights FOUR STONE lighter than Paul – on his boxing ‘hit-list’.

But the unbeaten celebrity, 24, returns on December 18 against 7-0 Tommy Fury, 22, the brother of heavyweight champion Tyson, 33.

Davis, who faces Isaac Cruz, 23, on Sunday, fell short of giving a prediction but blasted Paul’s boxing ability.

He said: “I don’t know, But I know that Jake can’t fight. He can’t fight so.”
